Nepal is one of the most famous tourists destinations in the world and no Nepal tour can be complete without the trekking in Nepal. Nepal offers some of the best trekking facilities and opportunities in the world and the most famous spot is the Annapurna. Both the Annapurna base camp as well as the Annapurna Circuit trek offer incomparable adventure opportunities for Nepal Treks Jomsom Trek.
Annapurna base camp trek is a moderate type of trekking. It is a combination of easy walking and majestic scenery which includes a 4200m route to the Annapurna sanctuary. It is one of the most scenic treks in Nepal. The Annapurna base camp is a highly glacial basin located to the north of the Pokhara. It gets its name from the local Hindu goddess which is worshipped by the local population of the region. The isolated peaks are accessible only through one route which goes through the deep gorges among the Machchapucchre and Hiunchuli. The peaks in the region is at least 7000m high. The gangapurna and glacier dome is visible on route. The Annapurna trek in Nepal is 16 days from the capital Kathmandu and can be combined with other adventure activities like paragliding nd white water rafting at Pokhara.
It is one of the longest mountain treks in the world and this makes is really challenging and exciting. The full circuit trek is 20 days walking business and if starting from Kathmandu it takes 24 days on an average. The modern facilities in the region allows the trek to be shortened for those tourists who do not have too much time. There are options available for the half Annapurna Trek which must includes the Tilicho lake at the foothill of Tichilo Mountain with a fly out from Manang. Following the Annapurna circuit Tilicho lake trek, extra adventure can be added to the trek by crossing the Thorung la pas which are 5000m high. Mukinath and Jarakot are two more destinations that offer Buddhist monasteries and temples along with their peaceful and charming Tibetan character.
For those who wish to explore this beautiful region with patience, there are chances for visiting the deepest valley in Nepal called by the name of Kali Gandak valley which carves its way in among peaks of height more than 8000m. This is also the deepest valley in the world and is located among the Dhaulagiri and the Annapurna peaks of Nepal.
To add this problem, when the water finally falls to the ground as rain or snow it has another devastating effect. Like the Artic which reflects most of the suns energy back to into the atmosphere the glaciers remain in place because they do not absorb that much heat being white but when they are darkened by BC they absorb more heat and more melting occurs.
Its time for the west to start realizing that we live in a world that is heating and cooling at the same time and to put in place some sort of international plan to address the causes of these dramatic climatic changes. While on a trek to the Annapurna Circuit last year we could clearly see layers of black carbon deposited on the glaciers near Tilicho Lake.
